Council will investigate reports of abandoned vehicles and goods by making reasonable enquiries. Council may check:
- the vehicle and goods condition
- location of vehicles and goods
- potential ownership
- any registration.
Goods may include camping gear, tent, furniture or a vessel.
Council will try to find the vehicle or goods owner and have them remove it from council land. If we can't locate the owner, a notice will be placed on the vehicle or goods advising that it will be removed by a certain date. We may tow a vehicle immediately if it is a danger to public safety.
If an abandoned vehicle or good is not removed by the date on the notice, council will impound the vehicle or good.
If the vehicle or goods are not claimed within one month of being impounded, we will advertise it for 14 days. It will then be disposed of by public auction. Council may dispose of vehicles or goods of no value (e.g. damaged, missing parts or not roadworthy) without going to auction.
Unregistered vehicles not stored on private property are considered abandoned.
Reporting an abandoned vehicle
If you spot an abandoned vehicle, you can email Customer Service. Please include:
- vehicle description including colour, make, model and registration number (where possible)
- specific location to help locate the vehicle.
Note: abandoned vehicles on main or State controlled roads are managed by the Department of Transport and Main Roads.
Refer to the list of State controlled roads in the Sunshine Coast region.
Impounded vehicles or goods
Owners who would like to collect impounded vehicles or goods must:
- do so within one month of impounding
- complete the application form (as required under state government laws)
- send proof of ownership and photo identification (drivers licence, 18+ card or passport) which has been verified by a Justice of the Peace via email. Or you can bring proof of ownership and photo identification to a council customer service centre.
On receipt of proof of ownership and photo identification council will contact you to pay the release fees and any other applicable charges. You will also need to provide release paperwork so that you can collect your vehicle or goods.
